Ian Poulter shares the clubhouse lead during the first round of the US Open but Rory McIlroy had a round to forget.

England’s Poulter is tied at one under par with American Scott Piercey after rounds of 69 at a windy Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in New York state.

Northern Ireland’s McIlroy had three double bogeys in a 10-over-par 80, while Americans Jordan Spieth (78) and Phil Mickelson (77) also struggled.

England’s Justin Rose, US Open champion in 2013, opened with a one-over 71.
